Q.Flaky scale on ficus

Zone Solvang, Ca | Anonymous added on September 12, 2020 | Answered

My ficus has a flaky scale like substance on the leaves. I can rub it off and it is not sticky nor does it have any bugs on it as far as I can tell. It’s just light and flaky. It looks like scale without the bug.
